Much To Do at the City’s Children’s Winter Festival

March 1, 2018

Children’s Winter Fest returned to Boston Common during school vacation, coordinated by Boston Parks and Recreation Department in conjunction with Highland Street Foundation.

“The Children’s Winter Festival has become a well-love tradition in Boston and we are pleased to bring it back in 2018,” Mayor Martin Walsh said.

“Many children and their families attended the festival for a day filled with fun activities,” the Mayor said.

Some of the many attractions were: A 45-foot-long Toboggan Tunnel mountainous adventure with twin roller lanes, a 30-foot-high inflatable Everest Climb N Slide, and a Snow Mazing maze activity.

Highland Foundation sponsored a week-long Winter Camp at the Boston Common Frog Pond with free skating and rentals for all ages.

The Festival also featured a DJ from Magic 106.7, an appearance by the L.L. Bean Bootmobile with their popular Boot Toss game, giveaways from “DreamWorks Animation Trolls: The Beat Goes On!” Now airing on Netflix, and refreshments from Sparkling Ice beverages and Power Crunch protein energy drinks.

In addition, the Appellation Mountain Club’s Outdoors Rx program presented a scavenger hunt and nature walks.

Support was also provided by Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center and Cricket Wireless.

            Many people attended the “Much Too Do” family activity.
